This release is mainly meant deal with 2 urgent build failure issues reported by users.
If your distribution is using Version 6.11.0, please replace it with this version as soon as possible.
There is very little change in the functionality compared to the previous release, but I did rewrite hard to maintain and very awkwardly written XAA / EXA initialization code.
It is always possible that I can mess up the code, but it appears that the code is working correctly.
